Storyline
What Hillary Clinton Really Represents?

The Clintons are arguably the most prominent duo in modern political history. Given the probability of Hillary Clinton's clinching of the Democratic nomination for President of the United States, it's an ideal moment for a documentary like What Hillary Clinton Really Represents?, a pull-no-punches expose produced by the acclaimed Empire Files series. Led by ace reporter Abby Martin, the film looks beneath the election cycle rhetoric and uncovers more than a few disturbing skeletons which may be lurking in Clinton's closet.

With a bellicose and bitter tone, the film paints Clinton as the ultimate establishment candidate, and an individual who consistently protects the interests of large corporations over the benefit of the people.

She began her trek to political dominance in surprising fashion as a supporter of Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater in 1964. She soon switched her party loyalty, and alongside her husband, she rose to become a major player in regional, national, and international politics.

The bulk of the film includes a complex and breathless weaving of compromises and offenses she's been accused of committing along the way. These include her long-standing alliances with the wealthiest corporations, Wall Street cronies and big banks both through her work in the political arena and the Clinton Foundation, her persistence in maintaining a U.S. presence in destabilized regions and calls for ongoing military conflict, her support of a crime bill that many view as a shameless attack on African American youth, and her profound failures of judgement in regions like Libya and Benghazi.

Much as a little-known Barack Obama did in 2008, Senator Bernie Sanders has exploited these defects in Clinton's character to his advantage. The people are listening and formed a vocal chorus of protest within the Democratic Party. This movement of the people has not penetrated the political establishment, however. The filmmakers contend that the super-delegate opposition to the will of the people is partially the result of large financial interests and lobbying powers embedded within Clinton's super PAC.

What Hillary Clinton Really Represents? is a damning indictment of a powerhouse figure in American politics, and may offer valuable food for thought for many viewers before they journey to the voting booth.

    Seldom have I seen such a politically biased documentary. Shame on you all. I don't believe that Hillary Clinton is perfect, but much of this documentary are lies and negative inference.

  2. Tom

    Why are democrats in denial about her?

  3. Andrea

    I like Abby Martin, but she's way too radical about politics and economies; her thoughts on war are great tho

  4. charlieb1488

    Ugh! The way that they present the "information" removes any semblance of credibility. I think Hillary is a corporate puppet and stereotypical politician. Everything this woman (narrator/host) does is slanted and done for dramatic effect. Trash.

  5. NARAYAN POUDYAL

    This is high time to lead the US by the most energetic lady Hillary Clinton
    This is need to prove US is the leading country to establish and explore the all the values and beauty of democracy.

  6. acinosa

    Better than the alternative- - a president who IS a corporation--and a buffoon

  7. Richard Raymond

    As a Canadian who follows American politics to a certain degree, I would have to follow the candidate who comes across as the one who would be best for America and the world. I only wish Bernie Sanders was 20 years younger!

  8. acinosa

    As a dual US/Canadian citizen I agree.

  9. pa

    Of course now she needs to do one on Tump with the same bias and it should be a doozy!

  10. bluetortilla

    Americans will have a choice- vote for Hillary or Trump. The third choice- to promote the New Revolution can be done whether one votes or not. I choose to vote against a trump, and though she is a puppet, to vote for the first woman president. It's not a 'card'- that is progress. In the meantime let's begin and not end the fight against the current system of empire and oppression.

  11. Kemo Sabe

    Bernie Sanders has a level head but does not use it regarding Russia. Clintons cabal needs to be shattered into pieces. They need to learn that things do not go better with Coke.

  12. Justin

    Being fully aware of who Abby Martin works for, I approached this doc with a slight level of skepticism. However, after watching, I am perplexed that other commenters find it to be overly biased. I find it to be 100% on point and indicative of what HRC is all about - a self-serving, egotistical sociopath.

    I've been a lifelong Democrat, but have cut all ties with the party moving forward. Hillary is worse for America than Trump. Why? Because she knows but, but doesn't have the conscience to stand for what is right.

  13. troutmouf

    abby martin sounds like she smokes 25 marble cigrits per day

  14. canadian

    too bad the americans dont have anyone sane to vote for...
    its all rigged the rich wont let anyone sane climb into the political world

  15. unitedstatesofimerica

    Your vote doesn't count,and it never has.

  16. Brock

    Hillary works for Goldman Sachs. End of story.

  17. RITZ

    Have you read Clinton Cash . . . The Clinton's serve themselves

  18. Angela Ross

    Canadian, we Americans DO have a very sane, honest, capable candidate to vote for -- Bernie Sanders

  19. MAGA

    All these angry liberals, face it your version of modality has helped destroy the west and academia is the epicenterof that corruption.

  20. Teresa Smith

    I will admit that Abby Martin does sound a tad melodramatic but what she says is accurate. HRC is dangerous for America because nothing is off limits to her and part of her legacy is to show the world she is every bit as bold and brazen as any man. She doesn't care two hoots about minorities and I am perplexed why black women gravitate to her. She will not get my vote even if my vote doesn't matter.

  21. Gabe

    Being a life-long Democrat I will state:
    I voted for Bill Clinton in his first presidential election. I have NOT VOTED SINCE THEN.
    The corruption within the democratic party is appalling, disgusting, disturbing.
    I refused to vote when Obama ran for office......both times. Anyone who has the resources and connections to so thoroughly hide their life background as he did is AN EXTREME DANGER to our society.
    I have studied Hillary. She is vile beyond words. The information regarding her disgusting and inhuman behavior exists for all to read.......should you care to know truth. Hillary is DANGEROUS.

  22. Tim

    The title of this documentary should not contain a question mark. #grammarfail

  23. Deborah Moderate

    The Clinton's history is appalling. Full of lies, adultery, murder, corruption and drugs. How anyone would wish for a person with this background to run their country is beyond comprehension.

  24. Parade

    This is the most unbiased and anti-propaganda driven "documantary" I have ever seen. Be better than the people that made this.

  25. Ben Legros

    Why in the heck don't you all vote for Bernie Sanders .
    At least he is level headed and honest

  26. Frank

    Ms Martin does not even begin to touch on the depths of depravity which is Hilary. No normal human being can even comprehend the blood soaked path she has plowed through this world. All the information any decent human being needs to condemn this woman would be derived from the first page of the book of a thousand pages of treachery. Anyone who defends her in any way has serious issues with comprehending the value of life on any level.

  27. blaice

    Abby Martin is sexy af. She also has a serious opinion, which I don't mind, as long as it is backed up by facts rather than conjecture. Keep on preaching sexy lady. Realistically, both Trump and Hilary are POS, but that's every politician.... ever?

  28. delia ruhe

    A Hillary presidency just puts off for another 4 or 8 years the kinds of change the US needs to make if it's going to recover from the tsunami of mistakes Washington has made since the end of the Cold War. We non-Americans -- citizens of Washington's vassal states -- have no choice but to sit back and watch the decline continue. But we're in a better position than a lot of Americans to diagnose and critique their choices; that seems clear from all the defensiveness in the above comments.

  29. Stan Carlsen

    a poor attempt to manipulate people . drop the effects and tell the facts. A total waste of time...!

  30. sunny

    Hopefully she uses the same hateful, judgmental tone when she does a "documentary" on Trump. Where are the facts people - she can say anything she wants if not backed up by facts. Words can be thrown around to make a point especially if you aren't required to back it up.

  31. George Leger

    That much of the convoluted path HRC has taken during her political career is delineated in this doc. is heavy-handed and overtly biased, it is nevertheless largely accurate and should earn more than a pause for Democrats during these primaries. Thankfully Bernie, though not quite the night in shinny armour, has little of the her negative baggage and deserves to be taken seriously as a very attractive alternate.

  32. duke ponick

    Will someone please tell me specifically what is untrue about this documentary? I also await a similar documentary on the man with the orange hair from Ms. Martin concerning his business dealings as he apparently has no other real experience.

  33. Jon Anderson

    Now I'm scared...

  34. AlwaysNeutral

    So... Trump is insane, wants to go to war with everyone, close borders, and try to turn the US back into the 1950s... Sanders wants to try to get us to become socialists which is a marxist gateway to communism--a failed government system as proven by the USSR... And now Clinton wants corporations to continue to run America and exploit the populace... Yep, I think is what we need is a revolution! Possibly a stronger Independant 3rd party

  35. Chez.AU

    I’m from Australia, and like many Aussies & in fact many worldwide, have been following the US presidential race with interest – for me, probably more so than in campaigns gone by. No matter who is elected though, the hidden agendas and dare I say political lies will become transparent once the successful party is in power ;) & unfortunately, this is the case no matter what country we’re dealing with. So far for me Bernie Sanders would get my vote and Hillary would be my 2nd choice. However, just a pity Bernie Sanders isn’t a bit younger. Regardless though, both those candidates would be a far better option than the ‘oompa loompa’ excuse of a rational human being called Trump (God help the world if that imbecile is elected).

  36. Ryan

    And the Doc. she made on Donald Trump was only a minute long. Something about how he is perfect and great and has never done anything wrong. It plays that same three piano notes during the whole doc. but in a higher key to make it seem more honest.

  37. JP

    so for all to check other articles about the list of donors to the Clinton and you see that there is something really wrong, the best candidate BERNIE SANDERS, FEEL THE BERN also if youre gonna say that the documentary is just fraud, trying to manipulate people, bias...put a counter arguments and facts to prove it.

  38. Robert

    Really good documentary! Estonian republican conservatives are with you and suport Trump!

  39. Barbara Docherty

    I am so disappointed with this biased silly report. How old was HIllary in 1964? I guess she was born 68 years old. Really, the tone of voice is more fitting for FOX news. This soi disant documentary is as bad as the conservative hatchet job which lead to the Citizen's United decision. But you probably don't know about that. She can't change her mind - because that's pandering. If she doesn't change her mind she's establishment. Catch 22. Enjoy your Trump presidency - you silly fools.

  40. James Thomas

    If you are a genuine progressive, I suggest not even trying to relay pertient and valid information to one of Hillary's supporters. They will discount everything and simply point out how beautiful their emperors cloths are.

  41. Joseph

    Obama destroyed all possibilities of the US having another black president. HRC will do the same for women if she is elected.

  42. Chain Yanker

    I thought documentaries were supposed to be unbiased. I'll be voting for Hillary because she has decades of experience in domestic and foreign policy and issues. Trump has none, zero, no political experience. With her experience there is a much better chance that decisions she makes as president will be the correct ones. And that is all one can hope, an edge in decision making. With Trump it's learning on the job, no place for that if you are the president of the USA, the toughest job in the world. Hillary has shown her diplomatic ability when she was instrumental in getting Russia, China and the EU to agree on sanctions on Iran...a very tough thing to do, Trump would have blown it, beyond his grade.

  43. steve

    If you are blind, be blind, but please refrain from your ignorant comments as if you are in the know. 20% of all politicians and good.....but 80% are not at all levels and are after their own objectives....

  44. Francois

    With the lobby system and the ruling of citizens united, along with a staunch two party system, the US political system continues to a be joke that is not funny. Super PACS are just legalized buying of elections. When money is considered free-speech, you know that the rich will dictate everything in America. People are either too stupid or lazy or unaware to do something about it. Or they think Trump is the solution because he speaks his mind and he is 'one of us'. So one politician is corrupt and the other is corrupt and downright nuts. Not much of a choice.

  45. Erin

    It is true that Iran's military (particularly the IRGC) has ties to terrorist organizations.

  46. Susan

    Oh please ANYONE except the braindead left understand hillary is one of the most corrupt, evil humans on earth.The clintons whole live has been scandal after scandal, rape after rape and murder after murder. The hacker from russia that hack her server, just was found dead, suicide, yea right, Some of the suicides related to the clintons shot themselves TWICE IN THE HEAD, ONE GUY WAS SHOT TWICE AND STUFFED IN A SUITCASE, AND IT WAS DEEMED A SUICIDE. Her and big ears both are devoted saul alinsky FOLLOWERS-rules for radicals-THE END JUSTIFIES THE MEANS!

  47. Peter

    This is NOT even an election about the POTUS, it's about the SCOTUS and whether we want to progress as a people or regress to a fundamentalist nation that teaches religion in schools, against the intended separation of church and state. The next POTUS will likely get to select the next two SC Justices. Hillary will at least choose moderate to liberal Justices that will protect women's rights (spelled Roe v. Wade), voting rights, LGBT rights and some form of Health Care reform. So it's a choice between 6 conservative Justices and 3 liberals (Possible 7-2, should Breyer goes as well, during the next term) if Trump wins and 5 liberal and 4 conservative if Hillary wins. It will help tremendously if the Dems could take back the Senate.

    If Trump follows his Party and has to appoint their choices, especially with a Rep Senate, then say bye-bye to AHCA, Roe v. Wade, funding for Public Schools (Charter schools are permitted to teach religion and creationism in schools, whereas Public schools are prohibited, separation of church and state, medicare, Social Security (will be privatized), etc. It would take generations to recover from a 6-3 slant, much less a 7-2 conservative slant. Thankfully, I am a Canadian citizen and have choices.

  48. Peter

    Trump can do nothing, nothing without the support of the Congress which is bought and paid from by the Oligarchy. Until we suppress campaign funding by superPACS, it will never change. He will reach the same stonewalling with which Obama had to deal. Already he has modified his tax break plan to favor the wealthy and middle class at the expense of the poor.
    I want to see how his wall commitment materializes first. Is he going to send American Government workers to construct the wall? Will he expect them to work without pay, while he is waiting for reparations from the Mexican Gov't. When the Mexican gov't "refuses" to pay, will Trump stiff all the American "Wall" workers like he did his casino workers? Better yet, I'd love to see the negotiation with Presidente Nieto over how Mexico will build the "Wall" at their own expense.

  49. Peter

    Citizens United is the real enemy. See Teddy Roosevelt's New Nationalism Speech from 1910, that's right ONE-HUNDRED AND SIX years ago, to see the scope and extent of our problems: Corporate Citizenship, Corporate financing of Public Servants, and low taxes on idle earnings (Capital Gains and Interest). Same thing in the Nineteen-teens as we have in the Twenty-teens.

  50. Bfd

    Swillary Rotten Clinton must not be anywhere the White House. The woman is a morally bankrupt, lying, disgusting blob of garbage. Her stench of incompetence, dirty dealings and nonstop lying, terrible judgment speak
    KS for itself. Woman should be in prison for her crimes.

  51. JJ

    I really wonder how many people that are blindly following hillary have actually read through the leaked emails on wikileaks. you can claim what you want about hillary but her emails expose her for what she really is. It's a lot of reading but you'll find out just how twisted she really is. If you dont' want to read, just go back through her political career it speaks for itself. corrupt to the core.

    as for those saying 'better than trump' there are multiple parties, it's not just hillary vs trump or are you so brainwashed by mainstream media that you had no clue there's more than two parties running. /facepalm

  52. John Young

    This documentary has a lot of truths. But if you just close your eyes and do not listen. She's great.

  53. trax

    lol. When a liberal like Abby Martin perfectly lays out what Hillary Clinton really represents...libs go sexist on her! Cant make this stuff up!

    Nobody knows what a Trump POTUS would look like. Everybody knows what a Hillary POTUS would look like. And that's the problem for Hillary...people know what she is now.

    Hillary is the most corrupt POTUS candidate in the lifetimes of anyone reading this post. I'm sorry if you don't like that statement...but you should appreciate on it a moment. Simple fact is Hillary actually makes Donald Trump acceptable. Without Hillary...Trump has no shot. The DNC went with the wrong woman in the biggest way possible.

  54. Mark Gaboury

    Goldwater, fracking, and Reagan are less evil than this narrator says. And she is an anti-Semite who I suspect to be a trans. Thumbs down, even though I am no fan, to say the least, of Hillary.

  55. GreatScott

    To bad her supporters cannot think for themselves.

  56. BILLY J MESSIMER

    Are you Hillary groupies crazy, its time to get off her tit. She is more wicked and dangerous then this video even shows. Do the homework people . She has done nothing but insult the American people by her lies on lies to cover more lies right in front of us. She has no shame..

  57. BILLY J MESSIMER

    I cannot believe people are saying better then the alternative, are you people out of your mind. Trump might be a little wet behind the ears and even a dick head but he is not a PROVEN corrupt politician who tells lies over lies "under OATH" in front of the world and then lies about saying those lies in front of the world. She is slapping us in the face with all the bullshit and if people actually fall for her shit then go check yourself into an institution because anyone with common sense should know that this lady is bad news. If she gets in the first thing she will be doing is going over her IOU list from all the donors she owes from other countries.Its all bad...

    who directed this??? sos please answer

    The US is not a democracy. It is a feudal state because corporations have more rights than people do. You can vote but it doesn't matter which party wins, the corporations are well entrenched in both camps.

    The only way to effect change in the US today is to protest for your rights and your communities rights. When people protest in larger and larger groups things can change in a hurry. Look at what is happening to the oil industry, people all over are protesting pipelines, fracking, newly proposed mining sites, seaport terminals etc. and some of these battles are being won. Protest is the key for people to effect change because voting republican or democrat will not change the feudal state that America is today.

  60. IM1RU2

    This is sooo biased that I just want to unsubscribe. What was the motivation for trashing Hillary when Trump is so much more trash worthy? What was the intended outcome for writing something that will have negative consequences? I have enjoyed receiving these emails and being able to see quality documentaries but I can't support this kind of tabloid crap. Where's you UNSUBSCRIBE button?

  61. Jim Calder

    Useless doc. Don't waste your time on this trash.

  62. Jim Calder

    Hitlery even tells lies about her lies.
